Partial scholarships are available to offset the cost of the programs. Students who receive grants typically demonstrate significant financial need. International students are not eligible to apply for or receive financial aid. We do not offer fee waivers to any applicants.
To be considered for a scholarship, please submit the following:
1) a scholarship application
2) Your 2012 tax return OR your 2011 tax return with a cover letter stating if there are any major changes in circumstances such as a new job, loss of job, or a move to a new residence for your 2012 tax return
This must be received NO LATER THAN one week after your completed application for admission, recommendations, and transcript have been received by our office. We cannot accept any grant applications AFTER a student’s application has been reviewed, and we will no longer accept any grant applications after April 12, 2013, even if a student has not yet applied. You must be a permanent resident or U.S. citizen to apply for a grant. We will review and notify students of their award status on a rolling basis, and all grant candidates should expect to be notified of their award status by mid-May. If you are working with and/or receiving additional aid from a community-based organization (CBO), please note this on your application form where indicated.
You should also speak with your high school guidance counselor about other sources of financial support that may be available.
